Rotten Tomatoes is notorious for being the end-all for seeing a movie. The film site rates pictures as fresh or rotten according to critic’s reviews. Earlier this week, we gave you five duds that received a historical score of zero from the critique site in honour of Eddie Murphy’s latest film flop “A Thousand Words” joining the select group.

For kicks, we thought we’d see how many films have been granted the envious 100% score. Turns out the pickings aren’t as far and few as we imagined. There are tens of films toting a perfect score—100 to be exact. 

Rotten Tomatoes keeps an ongoing tally of their highest-rated films. We’ve put together the top 10 for your viewing pleasure. 

So, if you’re sitting around on a Friday night and aren’t sure what to watch, check out one of these top-rated films.
